Life Class: The Selected Memoirs of Diana Athill

by Diana Athill - £12.99  Granta Books (2010)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781847081469 | ISBN 10: 1847081460

Diana Athill, born in 1917, made her reputation as a writer with the candour of her memoirs; through her commitment, in her words, 'to understand, to be aware, to touch the truth'.
 
In a celebration of her life and writing, Life Class brings together four of her best-loved memoirs in one volume, spanning her very English childhood, her life and loves during the Second World War, her publishing career at André Deutsch, and her reflections on old age.
 
Introduced by Ian Jack, Diana Athill's selected memoirs are a remarkable testament to an unusual and fully lived life.
